Disgustingly anti-gay documentary has an atrocious theme song to match

In several posts, People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch has been chronicling a wacky and vile anti-gay documentary by infamous activist Janet Porter.

This documentary ironically called "Light Wins" features Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul, as well as lots of discredited information such as the work of anti-gay activists John R. Diggs and David Barton.

Central to this documentary, as with anything anti-gay,  is the claim that gays are wanting to recruit children. The following is a clip featuring that madness:

And hold on to yourselves. This documentary has its own theme song, which is as bad as the documentary itself:

Especially when folks are attempting to push a false narrative of "intolerant gays."

Marriage equality explained by 'The Golden Girls'

The SCOTUS decision on marriage equality will be coming this week or next week. While we keep our fingers crossed, let's not forget that this is a simple issue. The opposition will try to complicate matters by their talking points and scary anecdotes, but the following clip from The Golden Girls says it all about why us gay folks want marriage:
